Day of Dead Calenda Draws Hundreds
CALLI E FAUSEY
Area officials and Land Trust of Santa Barbara County staff and stakeholders broke ground at Gaviota Overlook on 10/2 to celebrate the success of the $3 million fundraising campaign to purchase the land and protect it from development. The Land Trust launched the fundraising campaign in August 2022 to purchase the 48 acres of rolling grassland neighboring the Arroyo Hondo nature preserve’s 782 acres between Refugio State Beach and Gaviota State Park. With the new acquisition, the conservationfocused nonprofit aims to grow Arroyo Hondo’s trail network, programming, and public access for the first time in 20 years. by Ryan P. Cruz & Photos by Ingrid Bostrom owntown Santa Barbara was awash in color Sunday afternoon, with hundreds gathered in their brightest colors and sugar-skull face paint to honor the dead in the city’s first-ever Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) calenda—an Oaxacan-based tradition in which the community comes together to sing, dance, eat, and celebrate the dead with a procession through the streets. Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara in partnership
with the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the procession began on the front steps of SBMA and featured performers from the Mixtec region of Oaxaca, with bands, dancers in colorful costumes, and giant paper mâchè monos de calenda leading the way down to the Arts Terrace at Paseo Nuevo, where the museum had a traditional altar of the dead, authentic Oaxacan cuisine, and a dance party.

Clearing Up the Chaos
The Plan to Share the Space on the State Street Promenade by Ryan P. Cruz he current state of downtown Santa Barbara’s main drag—with State Street closed to cars and pedestrians, bicyclists, and outdoor diners sharing an open promenade—is, depending on whom you ask, either the best decision the city has ever made or a failed experiment gone on three years too long. But it’s a temporary solution, and the city is now undertaking the tall task of shaping the permanent future of downtown with the State Street Master Plan. It’s a hot-button issue, with passionate people from every corner of the city fighting for their vision for the future of State Street—restaurateurs and diners want parklet seating; parents want more kid-friendly areas; pedestrians want something to slow down two-wheeled teenagers tearing down the street at more than 30 mph. Tess Harris, the city’s State Street Master Planner, said that the plan should reflect the changes in the downtown area, which is “evolving and becoming more of a neighborhood with State Street as the core.”
The State Street Advisory Committee is laying the groundwork for the master plan, and on Monday, the group held its latest public meeting regarding the plans for mobility, transportation, and sharing space on State Street. The “Create State” team, made up of city staff and outside consultants from MIG, presented several options to balance the limited space available on the street for bikes, pedestrians, and emergency vehicles, including an option with a separated one-way lane for motor vehicles. Four different options were considered, ranging from a completely pedestrian promenade to a hybrid option with separated bikes and a one-way lane for traffic, with the team recommending two specific options for each of the three districts proposed for State Street. In the Create State recommendation, dubbed the “Grand Paseo,” the Entertainment District and Civic Center, stretching from Carrillo Street to Haley Street, would be a “multipurpose promenade” that would be shared by bikes and pedestrians with access for emergency vehicles and flexibility for special events.
In the renderings, bikes and pedestrians share the space, with planters and patio seating pushed away from the storefronts under the shade of a row of trees along either side of the State Street. The Arts District, from Carrillo to Micheltorena, would have a dedicated bike lane and one-way vehicle access heading north to allow for drop-offs at the Museum of Art, Granada Theatre, and Arlington Theatre—something that was highly recommended by members of the public and by the City Council last month. Other parts of the transportation and mobility plan included MTD’s Waterfront Shuttle service and the potential to reroute bikes on at least one portion of State Street one block east to Chapala. The idea would be that bikes are allowed, but not prioritized, in the downtown area. City Councilmember Mike Jordan, who sits on the advisory committee, said that it currently seems like “he who has the bike, rules” and that he hopes the future plan for State Street would make it clear that bicyclists don’t own the street. Counclimember Kristen Sneddon, also on the committee, was similarly unimpressed with the transportation plan. She agreed that bicycle speed was an issue—“These are kids that are going 35 miles per hour,” she said—and said she felt that the early design lacked the vision and specifics she has CONT’D ON PAGE 8

PARKS Six parks in Goleta are up for adoption by the public, including Armstrong Park, Santa Barbara Shores, Brandon Open Space, San Miguel Park, Koarts Open Space, and Winchester I. The city’s Adopt-a-Park Program was piloted by the Noontime Rotary Club in 2019 to lend some civic pride to the clean parks and open spaces beloved by the Goleta community. The first step to Adopt-a-Park is to fill out a form on cityofgoleta.org and to claim the park to adopt. The work takes roughly two hours a month. Leadbetter Beach Park is getting a makeover. Renovations began 10/23, and work is expected to last through early January. Parks & Rec plans to regrade grassy areas to create a safer, more even surface, and then address nutrient deficiencies in the soil and install new turf. It will be the park’s first renovation in its 60-year history. All grassy areas of the park, including picnic areas, will be closed, and temporary fencing will remain until the project is complete. Park users will be able to access the beach on either side of the turf area.
COURTS & CRIME The suspect in the hit-and-run homicide that left his wife, 32-year-old Oxnard woman Blanca Aguilera, dead on Montecito’s East Mountain Drive in September 2022 has been apprehended. According to the DA’s Office, Jose Roberto MunozSanchez, 39, of Oxnard, turned himself in at the U.S.–Mexico border and was taken into custody by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office. He is charged with first-degree murder and appeared on 10/23 in court, where his bail was set at $2 million. He is set to be arraigned on 10/30.

A rendering of the Multi-Purpose design for the State Street Promenade
been advocating for over the past six years. “This remains a transportation plan,” Sneddon said. “To see it not addressing those issues is very hard for me.” Some felt that the design was lacking something less tangible: the elusive sense of “gravitational pull,” as one committee member, Santa Barbara International Film Festival Executive Director Roger Durling, described it. “I see a lot of compartmentalization,” Durling said. “I don’t see gravitational pull.” Anthony Grumbine — who serves as chair of the Historic Landmarks Commission (HLC) — agreed, saying the early design “lacks poetry” and was less a “grand paseo and more of a wiggly promenade” at this point. Cass Ensberg, an architect who also serves on the HLC, said that the circulation plan was “overly complex” and “confusing at best” and that preliminary designs could be “any town” in the country. Sneddon recommended leaning on the prominent architectural minds on the HLC and having the group help keep the
aesthetics true to Santa Barbara’s character, starting with renaming the generic “civic center” district to the Historic El Pueblo Viejo district. “That is the heart of what that area is, and that is a gravitational pull; it is what brings people here,” Sneddon said. But before taking on the abstract questions of how to revive State Street, the city will first have to figure out how to manage the chaotic mix of bikes, pedestrians, and diners currently ruling the road. “It’s still not clear to me how bikes and pedestrians can coexist safely. I want to buy into it. I’m just not convinced yet,” said one committee member, Dianne Black. “Millions of dollars of paving won’t make them mix,” said another, Ed Lenvik. There’s still a long way to go, and with the next meeting scheduled for December, committee chair Dave Davis said the plan is still missing the “wow” factor: “I don’t see the ‘wow.’ I don’t even see how we get to the ‘wow,’ ” he said. “I’m still waiting to find out, what is it that makes downtown a place you want to be, and I just haven’t felt that.” n

9/29 for felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor battery, as well as a violation of probation for driving under the influence. Custody staff conducting inmate checks found Gillett unresponsive in the bunk of his single-occupancy cell on 10/21 around 6:20 a.m. with “a piece of linen fashioned as a ligature around” his neck, and he was pronounced dead at the scene following lifesaving measures, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Although the death appears to be a suicide, the Coroner’s Bureau will determine the cause and manner of his death. The question of what’s blocking the steel debris net in upper San Ysidro Creek was answered last week after crews began clearing behind the dam on 10/10: a big tree trunk, little boulders, woody debris, and dirt. The work is a permit requirement, but it will also help the county know what lies in store if it opts to take over from the Project for Resilient Communities, which had six ring nets bolted into three Montecito canyons after the 2018 floods of mud, boulders, and tree trunks killed 23 people. The Montecito Planning Commission is expected to hear Resilient Communities’ request to extend their permit for one or five years on 11/15. Three people died in two car-related incidents — a fatal hit-and-run on 10/21 and a head-on collision on 10/22 — during a deadly weekend in and
according to Lompoc police. There, Lompoc man Antonio Ramos, 42, was struck and killed by an unknown vehicle at around 6 p.m. The suspect remains at large. Less than 24 hours later, a two-car collision on Santa Rosa Road just outside Lompoc left two 23-year-old women dead and a 22-year-old man in critical condition. The two women — driver Cassidy Falk of Solvang and passenger Alia Griffin of Buellton — died after their car crossed into oncoming traffic and slammed head-on into another car shortly after 5 p.m. The driver of the other car was airlifted to Cottage Hospital with major injuries.
EDUCATION La Cumbre Junior High is preparing to link what students learn in the classroom to what they may experience in the larger world. The school, with a Middle Years Program, was the missing link for International Baccalaureate (IB) students in the Santa Barbara Unified School District. The pathway starts with Harding Elementary and ends with Dos Pueblos High School. Once La Cumbre is authorized, the three schools will create the first TK-12 IB continuum in the district. Middle Years programs encompass the whole school, to prepare students for the more selective and rigorous IB Diploma and Career Programs they can apply to as juniors and seniors in high school.

For the Study oF ethicS, religion, and Public liFe ‘PEACE IS A BIRTHRIGHT’: Marlowe Daly carried her infant daughter to Tuesday’s demonstration in front of Rep. Salud Carbajal’s office in downtown Santa Barbara to support Palestinians and oppose Carbajal’s endorsement of President Biden’s diplomacy regarding the Israel–Hamas War. by Jean Yamamura he war between Hamas and Israel aggravated tensions worldwide and at home, with both Muslims and Jews expressing fear for themselves and their families, even here in Santa Barbara. In a speech from the Oval Office last Thursday, President Biden marked the increased aggressions in the Indo-Pacific region and in the Middle East, as well as the death of a 6-year-old Palestinian-American boy in Chicago, a victim of a hate crime. The U.S. is supporting Ukraine in its fight against Russia, and now Israel as well, and Biden asked Congress for $105 billion to restock U.S. arms, which have gone to both nations. Salud Carbajal, who represents parts of the tri-counties in Congress, pointed out during an interview on Tuesday that $9.15 billion of the funding request would go toward humanitarian aid to Israel, Ukraine, and Gaza. “President Biden is working diplomatically and aggressively to get aid moving into Gaza quickly,” Carbajal said. At least three convoys — reportedly 54 trucks in total — have brought water, food, and medicines into Gaza since October 21. These followed a visit to Israel by President Biden on October 18, during which he emphasized to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the need for humanitarian relief for Gaza and to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to open the border. Relief agencies have said the aid is a “drop in the ocean” given the state of siege on Gaza, which once saw 500 truckloads of supplies daily. In and around Santa Barbara, different groups have coalesced to support Palestin-
ians and Israelis. A remembrance at De la Guerra Plaza was sorrowful, solemn, and peaceful. A tense rally saw opposing groups stationed across State and Las Positas. Students at UC Santa Barbara tore down posters of kidnap victims. A drag queen attempted to organize a march for peace but canceled it when the flak hit too hard. Carbajal’s downtown office itself was the site of a pro-Palestinian demonstration on Tuesday. Read more on Tuesday’s demonstration at independent.com/news. “I know tensions are running high,” Carbajal said, “but there’s no place for Islamophobia or anti-Semitism in our country, in our communities, or the Central Coast. I understand that people are affected by the atrocities of what Hamas did and are concerned by the loss of civilian lives as Israel goes after Hamas. “Let us not forget,” Carbajal emphasized. “Neither Israel nor Gaza started this war. Hamas, a terrorist organization, did. They kidnapped over 200 individuals whom they’re holding hostage. They slaughtered 1,400 people in Israel: children, women, men, old people. And now they are hiding behind civilians. They are an oppressive government to the Palestinian people.” Carbajal said the Biden administration was doing everything it could to avoid a wider war: “Responding to terror and going after Hamas after what they have done is not incompatible with the humanitarian needs of the people in Gaza. I’m as supportive as the President is for Israel to go after Hamas and root it out, to destroy it. At the same time, Israel must do it in a way that minimizes the loss of civilian life.” n

COURTS & CRIME
NEWS of the WEEK CONT’D
EDI N EN A MOR ADO
Woman in Racist Viral Videos Charged
CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Jeanne Umana was filmed confronting a construction worker in September (left) and a food vendor in August (right).
eanne Umana, the Santa Barbara woman caught on video a month ago in a racially charged confrontation with a construction worker — an incident that sparked a large demonstration, and for which police recommended several criminal charges, including a hate crime — was officially charged on October 18 with two misdemeanor counts of trespassing and battery. The charges come just one day after another video was posted, in which she appears to harass a street vendor and claim, once again, that she works “for the police department.” The second video—which was recorded in August, “well before” the original September 16 incident, according to Umana—was posted on Tuesday by Los Angeles–based street vendor activist Edin Enamorado, who also posted the confrontation with the construction worker and organized the demonstration outside Umana’s house in September. In the clip posted last week, Umana confronts a Spanish-speaking street vendor at Alameda Park, threatening to call the police. “You’re illegal,” Umana can be heard saying in the video. “Because you’re selling food that is gonna make people sick. You’re a crook.”
NEWS BRIEFS CONT’D FROM P. 8 Veteran district employee Fred Razo will be the principal of Santa Barbara High School for the remainder of the 2023-2024 school year. The S.B. Unified’s Board of Education voted unanimously to appoint Razo, who served as interim principal since the beginning of the school year, during its meeting on 10/24. Razo took the helm in the wake of former principal Elise Simmons’s sudden departure in August. Simmons's resigned just weeks before classes resumed on 8/21, after serving five years in the role and 24 years in the district. The prospect of a teacher strike looms as S.B. Unified educators and their supporters continue to voice their grievances and advocate for improved working conditions and better pay. At the most recent 10/24 school board meeting, 150 parents and educators turned out to urge the board to listen to teachers. Members of the Santa Barbara Teachers Association demanded fair contract negotiations prior to the meeting’s scheduled sun-shining of proposals for 2024-2027 successor contract negotia-
She proceeds to tell the vendor, who was identified only as Antonio, that the City of Santa Barbara is “arresting people” for street vending. “They don’t want you here,” she says. Umana’s claim seems to stem from the fact that the City of Santa Barbara filed criminal charges against two specific street vending operations over the summer for violating fire-safety codes by using propane tanks and open flames. The charges were part of the city’s attempt to crack down on larger, out-of-town operations that were essentially operating full kitchens in the open, though no charges or arrests have come down on the city’s smaller street-cart vendors. In the most recently released video, Umana claims that she works for the police department in “public relations”—a claim the Santa Barbara Police Department (SBPD) refuted the day after hundreds gathered in front of her home to call for Umana's arrest a month ago. SBPD is aware of the second video and will be looking into the matter. Umana is scheduled for arraignment in Santa Barbara Superior Court on November 30. —Ryan P. Cruz
tions. Among the 25 speakers who spoke were new and experienced teachers alike, who shared their apprehensions about the future and intentions to leave the district if it fails to provide what the union described as “real offers” for salary and benefits. Read more at Independent.com.
CITY The plan to transform the former Army Reserve at the corner of State and Las Positas streets into the new home for the American Indian Health & Services Clinic earned unanimous support from the city’s Planning Commission last week, while the main building itself was designated as a structure of merit by the Historic Landmarks Commission days earlier. The Planning Commission approved the specific plan, development plan, and general plan amendments for the project, which will demolish a portion of the building to add a two-story, nearly 10,000-square-foot addition that would bring the entire clinic to about 25,700 square feet total on the 2.57-acre site. n

OPINIONS “GOP SPEAKER AUDITIONS” BY DAVE GRANLUND, POLITICALCARTOONS.COM
he most extreme of each side’s “positions” in the Israel/Palestine debate continues to depend on the denial of the experience, memory, and history of the Other. It denies responsibility of other actors, throughout history—not just the British colonialists who drew the maps establishing all the Arab states, but all those states that treat the Palestinians displaced in 1948 as pawns, and it pretends that history itself began in 1948. An opinion piece in the Independent last week stated: “In 1948, the Zionist movement established the state of Israel on the lands of the Palestinian people.” If this were literally true, it could justify the popular chant calling for the elimination of all Jews—“from the (Jordan) River to the (Mediterranean) Sea”— from all of Israel’s current political boundaries. However, this one assertion erases 2,000 years of history:
· It fails to acknowledge the complicity of the Arabs, before and during World War II, in the Final Solution. (See TabletMag.com’s “Nazi Antisemitism & Islamist Hate.”) It remains the objective of Hamas and its supporters to expel or exterminate every Jew in “Palestine,” as they define it.
· The United Nations, not some shadowy “Zionist movement,” “established” the State of Israel, by majority vote and according to a UN map that “partitioned” the land into then-viable Jewish and Arab states. The Arab States immediately declared war, which they lost, just as they began wars in 1967, and 1973, which they also lost.
—Jana Zimmer, S.B.
or 75 years, the Arab/Israeli conflict has persisted. To attempt to assign blame is a fruitless task. Radicals on both sides have inflicted atrocities, organized military conflicts have been prompted by hubris as well as provocations, many military incursions have neutralized paramilitary terrorists.

The immediate cause of the current Israeli military action is the carefully planned and staged attack on civilians in Southern Israel by Hamas terrorists—there can be no justification for the barbarity of this attack—but these events are the complex result of many forces: · Palestinian grievances with second-class treatment in Israel, and Israeli settlement and interference on the West Bank and in Gaza · Palestinian frustration with their own administrations and living conditions · Palestinian authorities’ fear of becoming irrelevant as Israel and the Gulf states acknowledge a common cause in resisting Iranian expansionism · Weak and corrupt neighboring governments in Lebanon and Syria
· Both Jews and Arabs were indigenous to the area known through the millennia as “Palestine”; Jews have continuously lived there since biblical times, as proven by archaeology and DNA testing. · The Prophet Mohammed lived in about 700 c.e., and the Al Aqsa Mosque was established on top of the Second Temple of the Jews, which was destroyed by the Romans in the first century.

· Repeated provocations by Hamas and Hezbollah, and the resulting anxiety of and reprisals by Israelis · Precipitous American withdrawal from Afghanistan, interpreted as offering an opportune time for an attack against Israel Rational actors would recognize that more than two generations of violence have not achieved the goals of any of the participants. A new strategy of coexistence is required. The talents demonstrated by Israelis at home and Palestinians abroad amply demonstrate the potential for a renaissance in Palestine. However, reconciliation would require the neutralization of the many radicals who terrorize the majorities that only want peace and liberty.
—Winford Naylor, S.B.

For The Record
¶ Last week’s Voice “What Is a Civilian” attributed the explosion at Al-Ahli Arabi Baptist Hospital in Gaza to an Israeli air assault, which was the reporting at the time of that writing. Since then, multiple Western governments and news agencies support Israel’s contention that the rocket originated from within Gaza. The Qatar-based Al Jazeera’s investigators believe Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system destroyed the Gaza missile and that no conclusive evidence yet exists to explain the hospital blast.

obituaries Judith Pratt (Judy) 7/13/1940 - 8/31/2023
Judy passed away in the comfort of her home in Goleta, Ca on August 31st, 2023 at the age of 83, several years after a terminal cancer diagnosis. Through her strong Christian faith, she remained positive and peaceful up until the end. She spent her final months surrounded by love from her children Kathy Surcouf (Andre) and Steve Pratt as well as her grandchildren Michelle Carroll (Blake), Alex Surcouf (Kaitlin) and Patrick Surcouf (Lauren), great grandchildren, Hewitt, Yvonne and Brooks Carroll, and sister Diane Dow (Bob). Born in Clinton, Iowa July 13th, 1940, Judy and her sister Diane moved with their parents to Anchorage, Alaska when it was still a territory in 1946. Her childhood was filled with Alaskan adventures: fishing, camping, and exploring the wilderness with her beloved sister and their many cousins who also settled in the new frontier. Judy began working as a dental assistant during high school for one of Alaska’s first dentists, Dr. Glenn Pratt. They married in 1958 and were blessed with 59 years of marriage before Glenn’s passing in 2017. For years Judy entertained her friends with stories about their honeymoon, the best of which involved a fishing trip to a rustic cabin and an outhouse. They made their home together in Anchorage with their three children Kathy, Steve, and Diane (who passed away in 2009). In 1972, Judy and Glenn discovered the beautiful 14

California winter climate and moved their family to Santa Barbara. They continued to spend the next 25 summers enjoying their lake front log home in Alaska that Glenn built. They passed on their love of Alaska to their children and grandchildren as they spent summers at the lake, fishing, flying into remote spots in Glenn’s float plane, and laughing around the campfire. In later years, Judy became a fulltime resident of Santa Barbara where she enjoyed volunteering at her church, tending her beautiful garden, exploring new restaurants, and hosting gatherings around her firepit. Many knew Judy and her dog Cubby from their daily walks at Haskell’s Beach where she amassed an enviable collection of sea glass and ocean treasures. The simplest pleasures brought great joy to Judy. She particularly looked forward to all the many family visits. She was so very proud of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and always delighted in their daily news and accomplishments. Her family wishes to thank Dr. Robert Wright and Dr. Daniel Greenwald whose compassion and hands-on, personal care was instrumental in giving Judy more time. They are also grateful to the angels who provided care and comfort from VNA hospice as well as private caregivers. Judy will be forever in our hearts…we will see her a little further up the creek. A family memorial is planned for November 18th in Goleta.

Thomas William Holehouse
9/25/1959 - 9/23/2023
Thomas William Holehouse, of Santa Barbara, CA passed away on Saturday, September 23, 2023, two days shy of his 64th birthday. Born September 25, 1959, in Springville New York, Tom was the youngest of ten children born to Robert Murray Holehouse and Anita Clare O’Brien Holehouse. He is survived by his two daughters, Clare Marie Holehouse of Santa Barbara and Erin Michelle Holehouse of San Diego as well as his wife of almost 31 years, Jody Dolan Holehouse, his brothers, Brien, Paul, John, James, Joseph, and his sisters Mary Ellen Brennan, Elaine Ferguson and Patricia Miller, 23 nieces and nephews, 32 great nieces and nephews and many dear friends and special neighbors, Connie Delbert Marquez, Sam Marquez and Jean Paul Beauchesne who looked in on him and cared for him in his final days. He is predeceased by his brother, Ronald Holehouse, as well as his parents, Bob and Anita. His youngest years were in the hamlet of Eden, New York with the annual corn festival, kazoo factory and Cromer’s mill memories until the younger part of the family moved south to St Petersburg, Florida, where Tom forged wonderful friendships and graduated from St Pete High School. Tom enlisted in the Air Force where he was assigned to be a surgical tech at Hill AFB near Ogden UT and developed his skills for the meticulous and comfort with medical professionals. Later, he used these skills in managing the
Pueblo Medical Commons for Andy Dunn, Dr. Marty Gilbar and Dr. Ray Robins working with many doctors and their staff. Tom traveled in Europe, worked with his local brother, John Holehouse at Holehouse Construction and managed real estate where he provided housing for many at affordable prices. For many years, Tom raced Wet Wednesdays faithfully with Andy on the J/24 sailing vessel, Cowabunga! It was on Cowabunga! where Jody was referred to race and the relationship sitting cheek to the teak, rolling sails and celebrating at Joe’s Cafe was forged as Jody saw in Tom the incredibly honorable person that he was and Tom wooed Jody as no one ever had. Cowabunga! remains in the family now in the care of Clare and Erin. Tom loved making people smile and laugh and had a special talent for connecting with people. Tom developed the famous J/24 Club Crab Boil which sailing friends hosted over the years for the J/24 one design sailing club. He loved to golf with his golfing buddies, Bill, Graham, Andy, Mark, Glen and others. As the primary caregiving parent to Clare and Erin, Tom set up their Seashells sailing lessons and races, supported their softball and volleyball games, encouraged and supported Clare to join AAPLE and Erin to join the Entrepreneurship Academy at San Marcos High School which sparked their passion for their careers in business and entrepreneurship. He took them on camping trips which made them appreciate nature, the simple things in life and quality family time together which also includes many special Holehouse extended family gatherings and reunions across the country. He had the biggest heart with an ability to make sure everyone felt valued. He brought a special light into every room he walked into. While he
was taken too early and we will miss him dearly, we hope to carry his light in us every day. Funeral service will be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, 10:30 a.m. at San Roque Church, Santa Barbara, CA. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity in his memory and consider the Santa Barbara Youth Sailing Foundation to help encourage more youth to learn this incredibly valuable Corinthian skill that overcomes fear and helps to build skills that conquer the living conflicts of man versus himself, machine, nature and man all while fostering mutual respect.

Adelina Alva-Padilla 1936–2023
Chumash Spiritual Leader ‘We honor all that is around us on the earth, for we are part of everything. We are only here for a while, and I am so happy the Ancestors showed me this way, that they embraced me, that they loved me enough to give me the gift of life.’ —Adelina Alva-Padilla Bear Clan, mother of seven, grandmother of 30, great-grandmother of 104, and great-greatgrandmother of 33, Adelina Alva-Padilla lived an extraordinary life spanning 87 years. She passed into the spirit world on October 1, 2023. Given to strangers in early childhood, Adelina was embraced by a foster family and her stepfather at 8 years old. Married at 17 and having seven children by age 22, she raised her young family in Watts and Santa Fe Springs as a single parent. Adelina would have never guessed that her journey would take her to ceremonies around the world where spiritual leaders revered and respected her wisdom. She became much sought-after by many for her knowledge and insights. When Adelina returned to the Santa Ynez Reservation in 1980 after caring for her mother, Juanita Kitano Pena, she reconnected with her traditional teachings. As people learned about her gifts, they began to seek her help. After a few years, she expanded her welcome area to include ceremonial grounds and a sweat lodge, eventually naming it Kiyičxalaswun Molmoloqiwaš, Healing Together with the Ancient Ones. Adelina enjoyed hosting many diverse groups at her home. After a ceremonial fire was lit, prayers said, and offerings given, Adelina welcomed everyone from Urban Indians in Los Angeles who used her sweat lodge to Māori people sharing culture abroad. She welcomed participants in the Peace and Dignity Run, Fulbright Scholars, Catholic priests baptizing her grandchildren, Kumeyaay Elders from Baja California, university students, and migrant farm workers. While the Spiritual Leader for the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians for 18 years, Adelina played a significant role by providing blessings and prayers at tribal milestones and events. Adelina traveled extensively. She was honored at the Vatican and visited South Africa, where she was blessed and honored by the well-known traditional African tribal leader Credo Mutwa. Her travels took her from Mexico to Alaska and Hawai‘i to meet with spiritual leaders and attend gatherings, sharing traditional healing, songs, and prayers. She shared blessings with Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Menchú and met with Hopi Prophecy spokesperson Thomas Banyacya and Onondaga Chief and Faithkeeper Oren Lyons. Adelina was a guest speaker at several events such as the World Conference Against Racism in South Africa, at the Honoring of Nations Conference on Religious Traditions at Harvard University, and at the Grandmother’s Gathering in Hawai‘i. It was my honor to take Adelina to 12 different museums in six states — to visit artifacts made by her ancestors and bring ceremony and offer blessings for these precious items. She regarded the artifacts as ancestors, some of which, as she said, “had not been around people of their own blood in over 150 years.” She wept openly while tenderly holding a finely woven basket like a newborn baby. To her, each item was a storyteller and carried the story of the earth, the person who made it, the people who used it, and the language and songs it heard — its entire journey. When museum visitors were present, they were
drawn in, becoming respectful observers in these ceremonies. There wasn’t a dry eye among us. Adelina Alva-Padilla lived an exemplary life of service to the Chumash people and to people throughout the world. After a childhood filled with unimaginable hardships, she believed wholeheartedly in helping others. In service to her community, Adelina delighted in serving homemade burritos to the needy from her kitchen window in Santa Fe Springs. She compassionately administered to people with AIDS, provided artificial legs to a young amputee in Mexico, took food and clothes to Native communities in Baja California, participated in veterans’ projects, and helped an entire community when she built a home in a village near Guadalajara. She supported the Flame of Peace project and tribal members participating at Sun Dance. She was generous with her time and resources. Adelina loved spending time on the Channel Islands helping Channel Island National Park on special projects and participating in programs at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. She particularly loved welcoming the condors at the Santa Barbara Zoo. She enjoyed helping on projects at Vandenberg Space Force Base and assisting Los Padres Forest Service. One of Adelina’s most valued relaAdelina Alva-Padilla holds a basket made of juncus textilis, commonly known as tionships was with the California Bears, “basket rush,” made by a Chumash weaver more than a century ago. a group from various tribes, inspired by Tachi Yokuts Spiritual Leader and Chief Clarence Atwell Jr. to renew the Bear Dance after it had never known, Vincent de Alba, revealed to his children been “sleeping” for more than 30 years. Knowing this was that they had an older sister born in 1936. With some very sacred, she traveled with them to support ceremony research, her brother Greg found Adelina, and she was at Cholollo, Tule River Reservation, Pala Reservation, united with this branch of her family. She was overjoyed Santa Rosa Rancheria, Mt. Madonna, Zaca Lake, and to learn that she had 11 siblings: five brothers and six eventually brought it back to the Santa Ynez Reservation. sisters. Adelina remained ever indebted to the father who The Bear Dance is done for healing. The dancers transraised her, Patrick Martinez, and would make an annual form, wearing full bear-skin capes and mimicking Bear’s voice, posture, and walk, while bringing the spirit of Bear trip to his resting place with her children and grandchildren to celebrate his life. to help heal the earth and people. Adelina treasured her family deeply. Her partner, Despite all this responsibility, Adelina had a light Oswaldo M.

She would crack up at a good joke and laugh at Juanita Ayala, Raymond Padilla, and Phillip Padilla — as herself when she thought about how she wore tight jeans well as their families, held a place in her heart. No matter where she was in the world, it is family that she thought and hair ratted out to “there” in her younger years. Adelina loved eating her one pancake, butter, and of first, ending every conversation with “I love you” and syrup breakfast at the Solvang Restaurant and rajas at “I love you more.” At her celebration of life, one of her granddaughters Super-Rica.

obituaries Regine Pringle
10/28/1930 - 10/17/2023
Regine Pringle was born in Nancy, France on October 28, 1930. She had a happy childhood with her parents and sisters until the German occupation of France during World War II when her family was rounded up and taken to a concentration camp in Poitiers, France. Regine’s parents were deported to Auschwitz in July 1942, her father Hersh Braun in convoy number 13 and her mother Faiga Braun née Tallerman in convoy number 14. They never returned. Regine and her two sisters were separated from each other and were able to survive as hidden children in orphanages, convents and with righteous families in farms and villages. Through the efforts of the Joint Distribution and OSE, Regine escaped from France by crossing the Pyrenees Mountains with a group of children into Spain from where she was sent to the United States. Orphaned and alone, Regine arrived in the United States at the age of 14. She was sent to live with the family of her Uncle Max Tallerman in Paterson, New Jersey. Thanks to Regine’s extraordinary strength of character and positive attitude, she quickly adapted to her life in the United States. After graduating from high school, Regine worked as a legal secretary. In 1953 she married Gilbert Wetter with whom she had four children. The Wetter family moved to San Diego, California in 1970. Regine earned a degree in accounting, and worked as a bookkeeper and officer manager, notably for the YMCA, until her retirement. In 1987, Regine married James Pringle. They lived happily in Altadena until James’ death in 2005. Regine then moved to Santa Barbara 16

to be in the same city as her daughter Fran. She quickly made wonderful new friends who were a very important part of her life until her unexpected death after falling and breaking several ribs. Regine was known for her uplifting and caring personality. Having lost both of her parents as a child, Regine was especially sensitive to problems of children in difficulty. She volunteered to help disabled children and children from disadvantaged families. She took to heart her involvement with At Risk Kids and was a mentor for Mis Tres Caras. She was a constant defender of social justice for minorities. Her children remember fondly how Regine’s trunk was always filled with bottled water and protein bars that she regularly handed out to the homeless she would come across wherever she went. During the last few decades of her life, Regine became aware of the importance of Holocaust remembrance. She gave countless talks about her past as the child of victims of the Holocaust. She would never refuse to give a talk to groups of today’s youth. Regine inherited a beautiful voice from her mother. She had memories of singing with her mother to entertain the other prisoners in the concentration camp. She was often chosen to sing solos for ceremonies and in shows. Her children have fond memories of a home in which there was always joyful singing. Regine dearly loved and was loved and cherished by her daughter Fran Finney and her husband Hal (of blessed memory) in Santa Barbara, her daughter Heidi Cahen and her husband Philippe in Strasbourg, France, her daughter Andrea Ransdell and her husband Fred in Davis and her son Steve Wetter and his wife Cindy in Chatham, New Jersey, as well as by her grandchildren Jason, Michèle, Erin, Daniel, Rachel, Jacob, Sharon, Marisa and Hannah, their spouses Barry and Max and her two great-grandsons Alex and Tom.

sorely missed. As Regine’s nephew Paul Lipkin summed it up when he learned of Regine’s death: Her life was filled with both early tragedy and later joy. The family would welcome donations in Regine’s memory to either the Joint Distribution Committee (donate.jdc.org), which was instrumental in rescuing her from France during World War II, The Humane Society of Santa Barbara (sbhumane.org), from which she adopted two dogs she dearly loved in her last years, or to the ALS Association (http:// secure.alsagoldenwest.org/ goto/RPringle), which is searching for a cure for the disease that took the life of her son-in-law, Hal.

Patrick Strebel – loving husband, Daddy, Papa and friend – was born in Columbus, OH on January 22, 1945 to Dick and Micky Strebel. He died on October 7, 2023 in Santa Barbara, CA at the age of 78. After graduating high school, Patrick attended the Columbus College of Art & Design where he studied illustration and design. He was working his way through college as a respiratory technician at Riverside Methodist Hospital when he saw a beautiful nurse at a friend’s house and knew he would marry her one day. Charleen and Patrick’s first date was New Year’s Eve 1966 and they were mar-
ried February 17, 1968 in Columbus, OH. Soon after Patrick was accepted to Brooks Institute, School of Fine Arts in Santa Barbara, CA where he majored in three dimensional design and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with Honors. He enjoyed sculpting with clay and metal, and painting with acrylics and watercolor throughout his life. Many of his pieces are still in their home and are cherished by his family. Santa Barbara was known as the West Coast Detroit where Patrick was employed as a fabrication specialist with top notch prototype companies for over 25 years. Some of his memorable projects include the OscarMeyer Weiner mobile, Mr. Peanut Hot Rod, Kissmobile, the Volkswagen New Beetle, and Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray III concept car; he helped fabricate a full size working electric car for Ford and General Motors and worked on a prototype hybrid motor in the late 70’s; Patrick also worked on the Minicar prototype Research Safety Vehicle (RSV) and Large Research Safety Vehicle (LRSV) for DOT and NHTSA, transportation trams for Universal Studios, and numerous other prototype projects throughout his fabrication time. Before retiring full time, Patrick worked for the Family Service Agency installing grab bars and building wheelchair ramps for many residents in the Santa Barbara area. He enjoyed this work, especially the conversations he would have with the people he was helping to continue their independence. Patrick had an intuitive ear and offered sage advice to all. Patrick and Charleen enjoyed spending time with their many friends made in Santa Barbara, who became their West Coast family. They were known for their gatherings, especially their annual St. Patrick’s Day party, Wednesday night fishing at the breakwater and late nights hot tubbing with friends. The fun continued as they welcomed their children, Erika and Ken, with outings to the beach, camping trips up and down the
West Coast in their Volkswagen Camper Van, and family adventures in Baja California. Patrick loved speed and instilled this love into their son; they spent many hours on their dirt bikes exploring the Santa Ynez mountains and he later helped pit for many of Ken’s motorcycle races in Western desert areas. Patrick fostered a love of the ocean and art in his daughter who cherished their time at the beach and has delighted in art throughout her life. Once Charleen retired they headed off on spectacular trips to Alaska, Belize, Grand Caymans, and numerous National Parks. He loved being Papa to his grandkids; watching them play sports, introducing them to the original Godzilla movies, and strumming the ukulele together brought him great joy. Patrick was never without his cowboy hat and appreciated a classic hot rod. He had a quick wit, sly sense of humor and fierce love for his family and friends. He is missed beyond measure. His family wishes to thank everyone that has called, stopped by, brought food and flowers; your love is felt. He was preceded in death by his parents, Dick and Micky and his younger brother, Jimmy (Ali). He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Charleen and their children, Erika Coday (Brian) and Ken (Jen); his older brother, Mike and younger sister, Sally Eilts (Hank); his grandchildren that lit up his life, Kali, Wyatt, Kingston and Scarlett; and cousins, nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to: Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Foundation, PO Box 689, Santa Barbara, CA 93102 in Patrick’s name.

Jo Radde passed away on Saturday, July 1, 2023, at the age of 86. She was born May 3, 1937, in Kentucky, to Hazel (Bobbie) and Scobee Walden. Bobbie remarried William (Bill) Hessel, in 1946. Bill’s job took the family to Panama during Jo’s younger years, then on to Phoenix, Arizona. There, Jo volunteered as a singer with the USO, where she met her first husband, Bob Darby. They married in 1957. While Bob served in the Navy, based in San Diego, Jo gave birth to a daughter Randi. Daughters Tracey and Kelly were born after Bob left the service. Then, in 1962 they moved to Santa Barbara, CA, soon after they settled into a home in Goleta, where Jo rooted herself. She was remarried in 1982 to Horst Radde, a horticulturist, who introduced her to the joy of gardening. She loved her flowers & fruit trees, especially, her roses, that she spent many hours pruning. She also found time to do a little fishing, hiking, and, of course, music. She joined a choral group at Goleta Community Center where she continued to use her marvelous voice. She had a pretty good scorecard on her bowling team, too. She was an avid reader but also enjoyed watching old movies, especially musicals. She also truly enjoyed the neighbors who always stopped to chat with her when she was out gardening in the front yard. After 20 years of overseeing contracts and grants for the physics professors (the highlight of her career), Jo retired from the UCSB Physics Department. She is survived by her sister Vicki Hessel, a brother Richard Hessel,

The Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C., is exhibiting photos of Unzueta’s work, and he’s painted his murals in such far-flung locales as the state of Iowa. No other public artist in Santa Barbara County is nearly as prolific or remotely as ubiquitous. Little wonder Manuel Unzueta has been enshrined in Santa Barbara High School’s Wall of Fame, perhaps the single highest honor Santa Barbara has to bestow. With Manuel Unzueta, however, there’s never just one story. There are always many. At 74 years old, Unzueta seems almost giddy with life. In person, he’s enthusiastic, generous, smart, funny, proud, playful, patient, and precise. He tells his stories—even after all these years—with a mixture of astonishment and revelation. There are always digressions. One could easily suffer whiplash trying to follow along. But it’s well worth the effort to keep up. On Thursday, October 26, Unzueta will stand in front of the massive seven-paneled mural he helped mastermind 45 years ago on Santa Barbara City College’s Campus Center, “Metamorphosis of Reality.” He will be celebrating the new City College program

Most always, that story is much bigger—and much more interesting—than the person telling it thinks it is. Aside from the Chumash—occupants of this chunk of land now for 12,000 years—none of us are original inhabitants. We all came from someplace else. What drew us? For most of his life, Manuel Unzueta—muralist, historian, Chicano activist, educator, soul-singer, soccer coach, story teller, and, yes, a Mexican immigrant—has been asking himself and the Santa Barbara community these very questions. Why did we come here? And what did we find once we got here? For nearly all this time, Unzueta has been painting his answers on giant walls throughout Santa Barbara County—maybe 50 in all. His work, it seems, is everywhere. La Casa de la Raza. All over Ortega Park. The Santa Barbara High School cafeteria. Santa Barbara Junior High School. Isla
On one side of “Metamorphosis of Reality” is murder and violence; on the other education and democracy. Unzueta’s murals never went in for small talk. 18

Raíces—“Roots” in English—designed to support its firstyear Latine students (pronounced “luh-teen-ay”) who are often unprepared for the cultural jolt of higher education. Latine students make up almost 40 percent of City College enrollment, but only 37 percent graduated last year. The Raíces program will provide more academic counseling, mentoring, and a safe haven for students, guiding them through this transition.
SPEAKING ART Unzueta was selected as the keynote speaker at the event, according to Dr. Melissa Menendez, the City College English professor who helped secure the $3 million federal grant for the Raíces program, because, “His story is the story of so many of our students.” That Unzueta attended City College as a young immigrant from Juárez, Mexico, and later taught art and ethnic studies there for many years, adds to his unique qualification. And perhaps even more compelling is the mural itself. Unzueta was the artistic force behind the creation of “Metamorphosis,” an 18-foot-high, 70-foot-wide cosmic, mythic, symbolically sumptuous mural. A controlled visual explosion of Chicano pride, it’s about struggle, oppression, resistance, and perseverance. Think 1970s Aztec warriors combined with Día de los Muertos calaveras. Most of all, the mural is an exaltation of education’s transformative potential. The mural is for everyone. But it was intended to inspire those who got here the hard way, those for whom just staying here is the challenge. The mural’s two left panels burst with images of war, death, and the Holocaust. On the far right, two panels depict the fruits of freedom, democracy, and education. In between, there are panels portraying the goodness of men and the power of women. A smaller panel shows a woman’s hand pushing down, a man’s hand pushing up—two brown hands meeting at a yellow orb, red lines radiating outward. Unzueta explained that the orb represented a human egg and the lines represented sperm. “It’s the birth of a human people,” he said. “We wanted
“When you educate someone, you give them the fire. And that’s what [Manuel] Unzueta does — he shares the fire.” —Michael Montenegro
to make it a universal message.” Unzueta’s murals never went in for visual small talk. Naturally, not everyone on campus was thrilled with the mural’s scale or content. “Some teachers were, ‘Can we do something more agreeable?’ ” Unzueta recalled. But if an artist wanted to show the benefits of democracy, he said, the perils of totalitarianism needed to be graphically depicted. And totalitarianism is never pretty. The impetus for the mural sprung out of an arts trip to Mexico City in the summer of 1976. Unzueta — then a City College instructor — had taken 28 students to charge their creative batteries on the politically epic murals of legendary Mexican muralists Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and José Clemente Orozco. Unzueta had first seen these works several years before and knew the powerful reverberations they could trigger. “It was just breathtaking,” he said. He wasn’t wrong. When the students returned to campus, they wasted little time demanding space for a mural. And they weren’t asking. It was the 1970s; the Vietnam War was raging. The anti-war movement and the fight for civil rights, women’s rights, and environmental rights were in full flower. “They were highly politicized,” Unzueta recalled, “And they were highly aggressive.” They got their wall, a big one, right outside the cafeteria. From fall through spring, they all worked every afternoon, weather permitting. Though many were artistically unskilled, they had lots of ideas. Unzueta translated their suggestions into visual images, while schooling them in the rudiments of mural-making. “I was not a yeller and a screamer,” he said, telling them instead not to panic and to just slow down. “I’d show them how to trace a big black line about one-quarter of an inch thick. And we got there.” It took about seven months. Even for a young man — Unzueta was then just 28 and still harboring dreams of becoming a professional soccer player — the work was physically grueling. “It was a killer,” Unzueta confessed. “A killer.” Forty-five years later, “Metamorphosis” is still a powerful sight, but it has become fragile and the once-vibrant colors are fading away. “The sun hits the mural very hard every afternoon,” Unzueta explained. To restore it, he estimates, will
take about four months of work. But organizers of the Raíces program are committed to making that happen. Assuming Dr. Menendez and Raíces coordinator Sergio Lagunas can secure the necessary state funding, Unzueta will have to summon the strength to take on the task. After painting murals for nearly 60 years, Unzueta says his right shoulder causes so much pain he can’t even move his hand. The wall underneath the mural will need to be cleaned, the outlines retraced, and the colors repainted. “I will have to psych myself up, but we will redo it.” In the Mexican tradition, he explained, murals are generally not intended to last forever. But when Unzueta and his students finished “Metamorphosis,” he clearly remembers thinking, “This mural was here to stay.”
HISTORY AIN’T BUNK Listening to Manuel Unzueta tell his stories proves, yet again, that history is too interesting to be entrusted to historians. For him, history is a river forever rushing downstream. Born in Ciudad Juárez on February 10, 1949, he is one of four children born to Concha and Manuel Unzueta, right across the Rio Grande River from the American city of El Paso. “I am a totally bicultural person,” he said in an interview on the podcast Ask Me Anything. “I was born with one foot in El Paso and one foot in Juárez with the Rio Grande running right through my heart and my mind.” While undeniably poetic, this description is also factual. Unzueta grew up listening to the full panoply of Mexican music as well as sounds from across the river — the ever-outrageous Little Richard; the troubadour of El Paso gunslingers, Marty Robbins; and the King, Elvis Presley. “I was a crazy kid from the barrio,” Unzueta said, always a little bit different. He collected bugs — cockroaches, spiders, scorpions — and even rats. And from an early age, he was always drawing. He loved drawing the bark of trees. He copied comic-book art by placing a pane of glass over the images and tracing them. He was further inspired by a street artist who had no hands or feet but had attached pencils to his elbows. To
Unzueta, the drawings were amazing. At school, Unzueta was the kid whom other students asked for portraits and sketches. Pretty soon, his teachers were asking too. But, like most of his friends, he was an avid soccer player. Unzueta recalls playing two games a day in 110-degree heat. Unzueta says he was the only one of his friends who had both a mother and father, though his father would frequently work jobs in Santa Barbara, where the family had relatives. His parents owned a barrio grocery store in Juárez where the whole family watched the news on a small black-andwhite TV, and everyone kept abreast of current events by devouring three newspapers. The date November 22, 1963, is indelibly etched in Unzueta’s emotional memory. That’s the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Everyone was crying, he recalled. But a few months later, everyone was talking about a new band from England called the Beatles. Instantly smitten with “Love Me Do,” Unzueta started growing his hair long and soon formed a band with his buddies. When the Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. his whole family watched. Listening to the girls in the audience screaming, Unzueta’s father asked, “Are they killing the girls, or what?” About this time, Unzueta’s parents sent him off to St Joseph’s Catholic school across the border in El Paso to learn English. They were also worried he was running with a rough crowd. He was. Juárez was a rough city; gangs were rampant and teenage boys were expected to fight to defend their neighborhood. It was getting to be Unzueta’s time to put up or shut up. One night, when he and friends went out on the prowl, a robber grabbed him and held a knife to his neck. Unzueta was certain it was curtains. But he was saved by a car’s lights washing over him and his assailant. The would-be robber vanished. “Since then, I have never been afraid of anything,” he said But his parents were. In 1965, his father told him that he would be moving to the United States. No notice. No discussion. He would be going immediately in a car with his two cousins, José and Miguel, who had been visiting from Santa Barbara. Unzueta was 16

years old. He had three girlfriends. In his mind, he was on the brink of stardom as a musician and as a soccer player. “I had a chance to be somebody,” he said. He was crushed. His father was not moved, even though a neighbor warned them that Los Angeles—then in the throes of the Watts riots—was going up in flames. Unzueta remembers the drive north through the City of Angels. There was smoke everywhere. It was scary. In Santa Barbara, Unzueta stayed on the Eastside with relatives from his mother’s side of the family. He knew some English, but not enough to be proficient. He was enrolled in Santa Barbara High, but it was mostly a miserable blur. He does remember tripping and falling in the hall only to see a beautiful blonde girl peering down at him. He spent the first six months hibernating in the garage. “I am nobody,” he remembered feeling. It did get better.

Why Santa Barbara? Most immigrants from Unzueta’s home state of Chihuahua migrated to Texas. However, it turns out, Unzueta’s family has Santa Barbara roots dating back to 1870, making him both a first-generation immigrant and third-generation Santa Barbaran. Many came here to work. One relative, his grandfather Pedro Quinteros, came to Santa Barbara in 1920. He was ordered back to Mexico shortly after the city suffered the devastating earthquake of 1925. Public sentiment then was that all jobs should go to native-born Santa Barbarans. In Durango, Mexico, Quinteros met and married Unzueta’s grandmother Celsa, who had beautiful green eyes. They had four children, some of whom immigrated to Santa Barbara. One however, Conception, became Unzueta’s mother. Concha, as she was called, also had beautiful green eyes. She married Manuel Unzueta, who had worked the Bracero Program in the United States. Together, they opened their grocery store in Juárez. That’s a convoluted yet incomplete account of how 16-year-old Manuel Unzueta came to have aunts in Santa Barbara. His oldest sister, Martha, had also moved to the city five years before Unzueta arrived, and it wasn’t long afterward that his parents and other sisters followed, settling into a home on Alphonse Street on the Eastside.
Manuel Unzueta played bass and sang with Kaptain Soul; he harbored dreams of playing professional soccer. Then in 1970, he decided he was an artist. “I even had a beret,” he joked.
By 11th grade, Unzueta’s English improved, and he worked at Aaron Brothers restoring frames for the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. His artistic chops got him a gig as staff cartoonist for the high school newspaper, The Forge, and his art teacher, Mrs. Strait, recognizing his talent, told him, “You’re too good for the regular assignments. Just do what you want.” Unzueta enrolled at City College in 1968. When Santa Barbara was hammered by a massive oil spill in late 1969, Unzueta sketched the horrible scenes. Dead birds. Dead fish. His father, who was working construction, volunteered for the massive cleanup effort to save the birds and the beaches. At the time, Unzueta played bass and sang for Kaptain Soul, a local band. He also had aspirations of playing soccer professionally. And his art was becoming much more politically focused. “I wasn’t a Mexican and I wasn’t a Mexican-American,” he explained. “I was a Chicano.” His art reflected that. When Brown Pride activists congregated at UCSB to develop “El Plan de Santa Bárbara,” a 155-page manifesto of Chicano activism, Unzueta attended three workshops. Chicano activism, he said, was “to enroll people in the universities and colleges. That was it.” Along the way, Unzueta also helped create La Casa de la Raza, a community hub for Latino activists, artists, and social service providers. He painted many celebrated murals there, photographs of which are now on display in the Smithsonian Institution. In 1970, Unzueta got an arts scholarship to go to France and Spain; there, his mind was blown by the works of Francisco Goya, Diego Velázquez, and Pablo Picasso. When he returned, Unzueta knew exactly what he wanted to be: an artist. “And I already had a beret,” he said. In 1971, he enrolled in UCSB, graduating with his MFA. His focus always was Chicano art. His professors were not encouraging. But Unzueta had already launched his career as a muralist. And while murals provided great exposure, they didn’t pay the bills. Over three years, he worked six jobs. He taught at City College. He coached soccer. He played guitar at weddings. He even released an album. As a young man, Unzueta was drop-dead goodlooking; as a public figure, he came across more serious than a heart attack. Mark Alvarado, a community activist and friend, studied with Unzueta. “When Manuel spoke, you weren’t listening to someone who’d just read 1,000 books,” he said. “You were listening to someone whose life embodied what he was talking about.” Alvarado believes Unzueta changed the trajectory of his life. Unzueta is still plenty handsome, and more than
plenty serious. But he’s not been immune to life’s vicissitudes. In the ’90s, Unzueta’s application for tenure at City College was rejected. During the Great Recession of 2008, Unzueta, his wife, and their two kids lost their Goleta home. In 2013, a fire broke out at Unzueta’s studio in his parents’ backyard. Before the fire was out, 200 paintings, 2,000 drawings, and a lifetime of photographs went up in smoke. About the only thing to survive was a rabbit whom Unzueta named Milagro, Spanish for “miracle.” Today, Unzueta lives with his sister Martha in their parents’ home on East De la Guerra where the street fizzles out on its way up the hillside. His parents are gone now, but his two children—one an actor, the other a psychologist—often come to visit. In the backyard, Unzueta has created a lush paradise retreat with so many varieties of succulents that it’s a miniature Lotusland. Recently, however, Unzueta was drawn into the limelight again. Back in the late ’70s, Unzueta had been at the forefront of an ambitious program to rehabilitate Ortega Park—then a serious public safety issue. Muralists were enlisted to paint a series of murals, and Unzueta was the best-known among them. Neighborhood kids were mentored. Over the years, maybe 50 murals were created. Of those, 18 remain. Two years ago, the fate of those 18 stirred a contentious debate when City Hall announced it was pursuing a $14 million grant to redevelop the park. It did not mention the murals. A great hue and cry went up. The Historic Landmarks Commission and the Trust for Historic Preservation urged the city to consider saving some of the murals. Unzueta became a strong voice to protect the works. He found himself bumping heads with younger, talented muralists—some of whom he had mentored earlier. They advocated for painting new murals rather than preserving older ones. Things got rocky. A compromise was reached. But the city lost the funding. What happens next is unknown. An art consultant for the city has declared the Ortega Park murals of great artistic and historic value: “They explore histories unavailable in textbooks and ignite pride in the local culture that is often oppressed or undervalued, and are truly accessible to every member of the public who passes them by.”
Born bicultural, Unzueta grew up with one foot in El Paseo and the other in Juárez. He was born, he said, with the Rio Grande running through his heart.
Making the strongest case for Unzueta’s legacy is Michael Montenegro, a Chicano cultural activist, historian, and podcaster. Next week, Montenegro will lead his ninth annual bicycle tour of the city’s murals, and Unzueta’s work will be one of the main attractions. “Santa Barbara would be a lot grayer place without him,” Montenegro said. Montenegro — now in his thirties — took Unzueta’s class, where he learned aspects of Santa Barbara history he didn’t know existed. “That course changed my life,” he said. “And I mean that in a biblical sense. It removed the fish scales from my eyes.” A recurring image in Unzueta’s murals, Montenegro noted, is the genie’s lamp. “The power of the genie lamp is fire. And in the 1970s, fire and education were joined at the hip. When you educate someone, you give them the n fire. And that’s what Unzueta does. He shares the fire.”

OCTOBER 26, 2023
ore than 50 years ago, Jerry and Helene Beaver, Harvey Bottlesen, and others gathered around a rock near the newly finished Santa Barbara Tennis Club. As they gazed over the promising vista, they contemplated the future. The topic of discussion: a nascent concept of a junior tennis program. Little did they know this modest idea would blossom into something beyond their wildest expectations. For the Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons (SBTP), a love of the game was all it took to create the nonprofit fueled by that shared passion and dedication to spreading the sport. On Saturday, October 14, the organization marked an impressive milestone—50 years. Remarkably, their journey spans a more than half a century since their establishment in 1971. The night was a joyful gathering, all about appreciating a shared love for the game and recognizing the achievements of some exceptional individuals. Underneath the setting sun in Montecito at the home of Julianna and Tom Dain, the community gathered around bright-green tables adorned with intricate bouquets and vintage tennis racquets. Perhaps one of the more notable items at each place setting was the tennis-themed playing cards, each adorned with an encouraging word. I traded my King card with honoree Marty Davis’s Queen. My card read, “Attitude: Good body language: Win or lose with grace A young player enjoys time on the court. and dignity.” A testament to the rigor of the game. their dad’s preserved wisdom. Among the honorees at the event were Beaver described the difficulty the nonprofit’s main drivers, the late Jerry of tennis far better than I ever Beaver and Harvey Bottlesen, who has by Tiana Molony could. “To hit a moving object with a been playing the sport for more than 70 years moving object while also moving.

Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons Celebrate 50 Years
Some of the kids who have participated in the Tennis Patrons school programs
The Sport That Lasts a Lifetime Relaunched in March, the after-school program solidifies this message by providing free tennis clinics in local elementary schools, with a special focus on underserved students. The organization operates with a small team and heavily depends on dedicated volunteers who step forward to contribute. For the relaunch of the school’s program (in partnership with Santa Barbara Unified School District and led by Adam Webster), they were fortunate to have a turnout of more than 50 volunteers. Another SBTP staff member, Lisa Aviani, told me the goal is to get kids who may never play tennis to try the sport. When I asked her what it’s like teaching the 1st graders, she laughed and said, “It’s absolute chaos, I mean, just getting them to throw a tennis ball is hard.” It may be haywire at first, but the outcome is rewarding. For the young ones, lessons start with the basics: passing drills, throwing the ball up and down, and tossing it around. “They will work with a tennis ball for 15 minutes before we give them a racquet,” said Aviani. In this community, there’s no pressure to outshine or go beyond one’s limits. What makes SBTP stand out is their absolute commitment to sharing the beloved sport, providing a space free from performance stress. “Everyone does it for the love of the game,” said Aviani. While this may be true for most sports, starting kids young is especially beneficial, Aviani said. They usually coach kids starting no earlier than 1st grade and form groups based on age and skill level. Junior team tennis in the spring and fall seasons has more than 300 kids ages 8-17 participating. Regularly, each clinic is managed by a lead, usually with a tennis background, such as a professional or a coach. Additional support comes from five to six volunteers. The positive outcome of pursuing any challenging feat is the feeling of accomplishment. And what’s most impressive is how the sport teaches kids—and people of all ages, for that matter—real-life skills. “Tennis is a sport that provides so many different valuable life skills,” said Neil Levinson, the president of the board of SBTP. “Skills like being self-sufficient, learning fairness, resilience, learning how to problemsolve. These are critical skills that everybody should have. Tennis is one of those sports that teaches that,” Levinson said. Watching the kids who stick with the sport improve and develop a love for the game is what SBTP is all about. “It’s really fun to watch the older kids start rallying because it’s so gratifying,” Aviani tells me through a smile. “When you play tennis, you get a long rally going, it’s so much fun.” Because SBTP is driven by spreading the sport of tennis, ensuring people have the tools to pursue it is key. If someone cannot afford lessons beyond the program, the nonprofit will step up and offer sponsorships as needed. This way, they open doors to everyone who wants to continue the sport. Tennis is for everyone. The Santa Barbara Tennis Patrons embody that mantra. “Tennis is an activity that lasts a lifetime,” said Bottlesen. And half a century later, it’s certainly proven to be.

Hole in One! Santa Barbara Nonprofit Scores a Grant
Educate to Fight Hate
Young participants at First Tee and People’s Self-Help Housing’s Guadalupe location
hat do you know about the game of golf?” a coach from First Tee asked his class of students, ranging from 7 to 14, all of them eager to be in the sun and learning.
Through this grant, First Tee collaborated with People’s Self-Help Housing, another nonprofit organization focused on the Central Coast, which is dedicated to building homes for families and housing people. Johnson explains how they have a similar mission statement and hold after-school programs where they expose people to things they might not otherwise be exposed to. “It really aligned to what we’re trying to do, especially with our outreach.” First Tee and People’s Self-Help Housing have now completed two six-week sessions at PSHH’s Guadalupe location, and they are about to begin their first session in Santa Barbara. Johnson explained the structure of the sessions: The first four are held at the People’s Self-Help Housing location, whether that be in a housing complex or grassy knoll, then the last two sessions are at an actual golf course, where the kids can practice on the real green and get rides in golf carts. “They get to actually play the holes on the golf course!” Johnson said. Through the six sessions, life skills are embedded into the curriculum as well as an inherent broken barrier as kids with little familiarity of the game get to be included. “One of the first things we do in class is introductions. We teach the kids to shake hands, make eye contact, and listen to the person they’re speaking with.” Johnson goes on to give more examples of important life skills the kids are taught mid-session. “In the middle of the game, there might be an opportunity to show perseverance, and our coach will point that out to the group.” In Santa Barbara, the first four sessions will be held in Ortega Park. The fifth and sixth sessions will be at the Santa Barbara Golf Club, to “get the real golf-course experience,” said Johnson. The groups of children are usually as big as 26, with an age range from 6-14.
First Tee to Hold Golf Lessons with People’s Self-Help Housing This Year by Kira Logan “It’s what rich white people play,” one brave child answered. First Tee, a national nonprofit organization with approximately 180 chapters, is dedicated to teaching kids life skills, healthy habits, and reaching kids who wouldn’t otherwise be exposed to the game of golf. The local chapter reaches from Ventura to Paso Robles, and raises all of its own money to then be distributed throughout the program for equipment, locations, financial aid, etc. Jessani Johnson, executive director of First Tee Central Coast, explains, “We accept every request for financial aid. We allow everyone to be able to pay what they need, even if that amount is zero.” She adds, “We provide equipment if kids don’t have access to it, and we give out scholarships and financial aid to anyone who needs it.” As to the content of the sessions, Johnson explains how the First Tee coaches are “trained to seamlessly introduce nine core values, some of which are: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, and perseverance.” The coaches set up stations for the kids to rotate through and grapple with the basics of putting, chipping, swinging the club, and more. “By the end, the kids get really excited about golfing,” Johnson affirms. First Tee recently received an IDEA Grant from the United States Golf Association, allowing them to expand their outreach, resources, and class loads. “The grant money covers the cost of paying our coaches, for the equipment, and pretty much all of the expenses. We’re so grateful,” said Johnson.

Eddie Ndopu Comes to UCSB Arts & Lectures
Disability rights activist Eddie Ndopu speaks at UCSB Campbell Hall on Thursday, November 2
ddie Ndopu knows how to grab your attention and keep it. And he’s doing it while seated.
Humor, Humility, and the High Life as a Disabled Activist by Sean Magruder Three decades ago, the award-winning humanitarian and disability justice advocate was told he wouldn’t live past age 7. Diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy — an attack on the spinal cord’s motor neurons — Ndopu is now on the world stage. At 32 years old, his résumé is nothing short of stunning — a current boardmember of the United Nations (UN)
Foundation (alongside such luminaries as the Queen of Jordan, the former Prime Minister of Norway, and media mogul Ted Turner), a cofounder of A Billion Reasons, a social-impact incubator leveraging disability-based innovation to face UN sustainability benchmarks, and a former member of multiple initiatives at the World Economic Forum. Ndopu was profiled by Time for his efforts to combat climate change and disability exclusion, and is one of 17 people tasked with tackling the United Nations’ 17 global sustainable development goals — extending to education, gender equality, and peaceful institutions. He’s also a Black, queer Oxford grad with a brand-new memoir: Sipping Dom Pérignon Through a Straw. The book details Ndopu’s experience at the prestigious university, where he was the first African student with a degenerative disability to be admitted on a full scholarship, graduating with a master’s in public policy. Clearly, he’s made good use of it — and is now recounting not only his life as a disabled activist and global change-maker but also the challenges we all face, with a public lecture tour. Join USCB Arts & Lectures and Eddie Ndopu on Thursday, November 2, for a free night of inspiration, humor, and most of all, humanity. Free copies of Sipping Dom Pérignon Through a Straw — a title every writer wishes they came up with — will be available while supplies last. From humble beginnings to the halls of power, Ndopu is proof that sitting down doesn’t mean you’re sitting out.

Ecology, Elixirs, and Six Courses of Uni
This month, Finch & Fork will donate 10 percent of the sales of this uni pasta dish to Surfrider Foundation.
COURTESY FINCH & FORK
Uni and brown-butter toast
quick. It made the night’s not-inexpensive wine — much more easily plucked from its terranean cellar than the urchin from its ocean floor — seem everlasting by comparison. But Kimpton Canary’s Finch & Fork turned the tables the other night, when approachable Santa Barbara County wines and fresh, locally inspired cocktails were paired with course after course of salty, creamy Santa Barbara uni. This isn’t a routine thing — for me or the restaurant. Welcome to National Seafood Month in Santa Barbara. As a participating restaurant, last week Finch & Fork served six courses of what can only be called a veritable uni feast. Uni and tuna poke with barrel-aged shoyu and fresh seaweed — check. Uni pasta accented by parmesan, furikake and bottarga, or cured tuna roe — you got it. Uni shortbread with apricot marmalade? Here’s something for the road, tucked into a little branded box. The kicker? Just one dish will go public at a time. This isn’t some big, oceanic ostentation, though. In honor of National Seafood Month, throughout October, Finch & Fork is donating 10 percent of sales of their
Guests left with a special uni treat for the road.
OCTOBER 26, 2023
uni pasta special to the Surfrider Foundation (surfrider. org), a nonprofit dedicated to protecting and preserving the waters these critters call home. And, in a reversal of the general story surrounding seafood consumption, eating the uni of purple sea urchin — the echinoderm gobbling up our kelp forests — is a sustainable act, encouraged by marine biologists. And, of course, chefs. A native of Camden, Maine, Finch & Fork Executive Chef Nathan Lingle is by Sean Magruder familiar with purple urchin — he grew up finding the spiny, alienlooking orbs under rocks and innocuously stacking them atop one another for fun. “It wasn’t until I was an exchange student in Japan that I had urchin for the first time, and went, ‘Wait, people are eating this stuff?’ ” he laughed. An urchin diver himself, in recent years, Lingle has also discovered the benefits of harder-to-find, often meatier red urchin, acknowledging, “It takes some work, but it’s great.” Lingle is now doing his part to spread that gospel, as the night would attest. Course after inventive course showcased the diversity and sui generis flavor and textural combo of uni. The meal featured everything from brown-butter toast with caviar — for me, the bite of the night: crunchy, moist and delightfully Maillardic — to risotto with prime New York strip, to even an uni panna cotta accented by cara cara orange and citrus caramel corn. Local sparkling, white, and red wines (including Flying Goat Cellars, 2019 “Goat Bubbles” Brut Cuvée, Santa Barbara County; Brander, 2022 “Au Naturel” Sauvignon Blanc, Los Olivos; and Alma Rosa 2020 Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills) were pitch-perfect
pairings, with the Ventura Spirits Opuntia Prickly Pear Brandy-based “Down with OPP” cocktail and even a Ventura Spirits Amaro Angeleno bookending the beverage experience. Finch & Fork will be extending their uni specials to benefit Surfrider Foundation through November and maybe even December, so there’s still time to stop by, eat up, and wash it down with a cocktail or local wine. Considering November’s special will be the brown-butter toast, maybe budget for multiple trips.

CHEESE, PLEASE: The recently closed Patxi’s Pizza downtown reopened this month as Santa Barbara Pizza House.
closed at 515 State Street last July, is the new home of Santa Barbara Pizza House. “Grand Opening!” says owner Erin Khoda-bandehlou. “Right in the heart of beautiful Santa Barbara. Making both deep-dish and Neapolitan-style pizzas and an array of appetizers and salads. Everything is fresh and made to order. Give us a try; you will be blown away!” Reader Primetime tells me he spoke with the owner and that several of the pizzas are named after local streets. I am told that Khodabandehlou is an accomplished, long-time Santa Barbara caterer as well as the former manager of Patxi’s. STARBUCKS COMING TO LOWER STATE: Reliable sources tell me that a new Starbucks coffee shop will be coming to 120 State Street near the waterfront, next to McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams and Melville Winery. I am told that a February opening is most likely. BLUE OWL COMING TO CARP: Reader Primetime tells
me that the Blue Owl is opening a location in the multi-tenant project coming to 700 Linden Avenue in Carpinteria next summer, where Bettina is one of the planned restaurants. I am hearing that it will be a walk-up window and not a traditional sit-down restaurant like their sister in Santa Barbara. RESTAURANT SNEAK PEEKS: This is the third in a series
about my visits to up-and-coming restaurants across the South Coast that are in various stages of construction to see when they might open. Here are some things that I noticed: CLAM BAR COMING TO THE HARBOR: Reader Steve C. tells
me that “The Store” at the Santa Barbara Harbor will be replaced by a clam bar and that it will be run
by Brophy Bros., the wildly popular restau restaurant immediately upstairs. CLARK’S OYSTER BAR: Last May, reader
Renee R. spotted architecture board of review plans for 1212 Coast Village Road in Montecito, the former home of Cava, that suggested Clark’s Oyster Bar will be the next tenant. The eatery currently has locations in Austin, Texas, and Aspen, Colorado. They are described as “a neighborhood spot with a great raw bar, house-baked sourdough, fresh fish, lobster rolls, pan-roasted hamburgers, and tasty libations.” I stopped by and saw that the building has been gutted and the front wall is off. This is as close to a tear-down as you can get without tearing it all down. It seems to me that they will most likely open next summer or fall.

SKYFIELD: Skyfield restaurant is coming to 30 East
Ortega Street, the former home of Black Sheep, Oveja Blanca, and Seagrass. All the fixtures have been removed except for a TV, a glass wall labeled “Seagrass,” and the walk-in freezer. No renovations have begun, but there is no doubt that they are coming because architectural drawings have been laid out on a table near the front window that reveal unsurprising things like future plans for a kitchen, a dining room, a patio, a couple of dish pits, and a restroom. LILAC PÂTISSERIE: Lilac Pâtisserie is opening a loca-
tion at 1209 Coast Village Road, the former home of Mesa Burger, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, and Tutti’s. I paid them a visit and noticed that construction is in full swing, with most of the new drywall added, and some painting going on. A new floor still needs to be laid and some pillars are being refitted. A new coat of white paint was being rolled on to the outside of the building while I was there. Expect an opening late this year or early next.

WALKING THROUGH FIRE WITH NOVELIST, AND S.B. NATIVE, KIM DEROSE POWERFUL NEW RELEASE TAKES TEEN VICTIMS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT INTO THE POTENT REALM OF WITCHCRAFT COURTESY
wholeheartedly recommend), I jumped on the chance to interview DeRose, a Santa Barbara native and “Distinguished Don” alumni who currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband, 10-year-old son, and 4-year-old daughter. Here’s a bit of our Zoom conversation. How does it feel to have your first novel published? It’s exciting. It’s surreal. There’s an element of anxiety because when you’ve never done it before, you feel like, “What’s this gonna be like?” But it was my childhood dream. So overall, it’s pretty exciting. My earliest memory from being a kid is I just knew that I wanted to be a writer.…I think I started dictating stories to my mom when I was 3. She has this piece of paper that’s my earliest story about this family of kittens and the mother that I dictated to her.…I would spend my summers drafting stories in my room when I had free time and illustrating them. When I was in 3rd grade, she signed me up for an after-school writers’ program. And that was fantastic.
Kim DeRose, author of the new young adult novel set in Santa Barbara, For Girls Who Walk Through Fire
here’s nothing more satisfying — and sadly quite rare—than reading a book set in Santa Barbara where the author gets the little details about this place just right. Kim DeRose’s new novel, For Girls Who Walk Through Fire, a young-adult (YA) work of fiction that meshes the serious subject of sexual assault with magical manifestations of witchcraft and off-the-charts teenage emotions, accomplishes just that. Set in familiar places like Adams Elementary School, Dune Coffee Roasters, Franceschi Park, Paradise Found, and Santa Barbara High (where she gets bonus points for naming the fictional principal after my mother, Mrs. Dinaberg, who was one of her teachers at Roosevelt Elementary School), DeRose has written a powerful story about teen witches who fight back against the people who’ve wronged them, with sometimes unintended, but always entertaining consequences. Before I even read the novel (which I now have and can
It is amazing how those little things when you’re young have such an impact. As far as writing for young adults, how did that come about? I just felt that was exactly the right audience that I wanted to write for.…When I was a kid, I didn’t have any concept of who the audience would be; I just knew that I wanted to be a writer.…I was gonna just finish my story and take it over to the bookstore, and they were gonna publish it. And that would be that. I was so convinced. It was probably Chaucer’s I had in mind. [Laughs.] I think I lost confidence in that along the way. I don’t think it’s uncommon for people that are creative to hear a narrative of, “Oh, it’s not realistic; you’re not going to make money. It’s not a serious thing to take on.” So I think in many ways, it took me a little while to kind of come back to that. And to remember that it’s really something I care about.…YA has always been near and dear to my heart, because it’s just such a cool age. To get to speak to that audience when they’re figuring

out so much about themselves and individuating in the world, I just feel like that’s really special and important. Sexual assault is obviously a very serious subject. Were you conscious of balancing that out with the teenage characters? I think that’s probably why I’m really drawn to genre and writing about, if you want to call it fantasy or paranormal, but you know, the use of magic. And witches in this case. I think part of the reason I’m really drawn to that is because you can deal with really serious subject matters, but also have this other element that maybe adds a little fun or levity, so that you have a mix of both.…And it allows me to have a balance of things in terms of capturing maybe some humor or fun, that would also be true of that age group. And it’s just also the kind of story that I love. A few years ago, the big dream for writers was going on The Oprah Winfrey Show with their book. What’s your big dream today? I really think the dream, and it’s hard to quantify this, but I feel like the dream is to really connect with readers who feel really seen. Part of why it’s hard to quantify that is the acknowledgement that you might never hear from them, right? I think about all the art that has meant so much to me, and I feel so passionately about, and I’ve never written a review, I’ve never written a letter. I might tell people in my life, but there’s no path back to that creator for them to know. I think that that’s kind of a hard thing to just know that you’re just gonna have to release this and know that people are gonna have this relationship that you might never even be aware of. I would say the other part of it is to have little moments of communion with readers and other writers. And those also tend to be kind of small and intimate. So it’s not to diminish any of those big things…. I’ve been a writer long enough to know the value of being a writer, and what that gives me and how that’s so separate from being a published author. And it’s something that I will always have as part of my life because of how it feeds me. —Leslie Dinaberg

Starting with a 4 p.m. show just for the little ones, ages 5-9, Katz (a very popular storyteller performer at local elementary school assemblies), will share some of his favorite eerie tales drawn from folklore, myths, and his own life. “Often I decide the stories on the spot,” he says. So while the tales are “not set in stone,” the 4 p.m. set includes stories for the youngest crowd such as Wiley and the Hairy Man, a Black American folktale; and Tia Miseria, a Mexican American folktale. The program for ages 10 and up (starting at 6 p.m.), could include Spin, Spine Reel off Skin, a Creole story which is certainly appropriate

Also potentially on the playbill are a personal story, The Duck Story; a Pennsylvania folktale, The Stuffed Panther; and another riff on Tia Miseria, The Juniper Tree, this one is based on Grimms. “I’ll be telling ‘ghost stories,’ which means what I would consider ‘eerie’and a ‘jump tale’(i.e. look, I made you jump),”said Katz. “The truth is, rarely are there ‘ghosts’in a ghost story, I usually draw from folklore.” Katz encourages people to bring blankets to sit on and enjoy the delicious soul food available for sale from the Soul Bites team. —LD Soul Bites is located at 423 State St. The event is free, but guests are encouraged to come early, as seating is limited.

PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW BY JEAN MORRISON PHILLIPS FEATURES EXQUISITELY DETAILED WORK
SILVER LEAF AND SILVER LININGS IN SUBTLETIES OF PLACE: QUIET OBSERVATIONS 700 FEET OR 7,000 MILES FROM HOME
Jean Morrison Phillips “Alex’s Cosmo” by Jean Morrison Phillips
stunning series of art photography by Jean Morrison Phillips is on view at the Faulkner Gallery throughout the month of November. With a subtly beautiful technique created with an alternative process she has developed for handmade prints over silver leaf, Phillips’s show — Subtleties of Place: Quiet Observations 700 Feet or 7,000 Miles from Home — features work from her series Silver Linings, Traces of Splendor, and Traces of Serenity. “These images transport you across the globe, bridging the gap between cultures and showcasing the universal pursuit of the beautiful,” says Donna Dufault, a collector of Phillips’s work. “This show will leave you with a newfound appreciation for the world’s exquisite details.” “These prints, meticulously crafted on handmade khadi paper with layers of genuine silver leaf and Japanese conservation tissue, possess a unique depth and subtle sheen that needs to be seen in person,” says Phillips of her work. She explains that her printing technique starts with printing the photos onto specialized transfer film, taking multiple steps to create a smooth surface, and then laying down silver leaf. “The last step in preparing the paper is to place
a layer of very thin tengucho conservation tissue over the silver and gently attach it with matte medium. Once the transfer film is dry and the paper is ready, I spread an even coat of transfer medium on the film and gently burnish it on top of the tissue and metal leaf.” She then peels off the film and applies special wax to protect the image. The results are fascinating. Images in the Traces of Splendor and Traces of Serenity series are from Thailand. From walking quiet side streets to visiting impressive Buddhist religious sites, she was repeatedly drawn into small parts of the scenes around her and felt a kinship with the unseen makers who had created them, Whether working in her own neighborhood or far from home, Phillips draws our gaze to the hidden treasures of our world and the vibrant colors, intricate patterns, and tantalizing textures that often hide in plain sight. —Leslie Dinaberg
Subtleties of Place: Quiet Observations 700 Feet or 7,000 Miles from Home is on view at Faulkner Gallery at the Santa Barbara Central Library (40 E. Anapamu St.) November 1-20. The opening reception is Thursday, November 2, from 5:308 p.m. For more information, see jeanmorrison .com/show.

(Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “Shadow work” is a psychological practice that has been deeply healing for me. It involves exploring the dark places in my soul and being in intimate contact with my unripe and wounded aspects. Engaging in this hard labor ensures that my less-beautiful qualities never take control of me and never spill out into toxic interactions with people. I bring this up, Aries, because the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to do shadow work. Halloween costume suggestion: Be your shadow, demon, or unripe self.

But there has been an amusing consequence, which I am pleased to report: Banning the books has sometimes hiked their sales. Gender Queer by Maia Kolbabe had a 130 percent increase. Art Spiegelman’s Maus I and Maus II jumped 50 percent. Let this scenario serve as an inspirational metaphor for you in the coming weeks. If any person or institution tries to repress, deny, or resist you, do what you’re doing even bigger and better. Use their opposition as a power boost. Halloween costume suggestion: rebel, dissident, or protestor.

(May 21-June 20): Do you ever feel you are treated unfairly at your job? Is your workplace sometimes detrimental to your health? Is it possible that a few small changes could add up to a big improvement in how you feel while you’re earning a living? There’s rarely a perfect moment to address these concerns, but the coming weeks will be a more favorable time than usual. If you decide to seek shifts, devise a strategy that’s as foolproof as possible. Resolve to be calm, poised, and un-flusterable. Halloween costume suggestion: a worker doing your ideal job.
(June 21-July 22): Cancerian comedian Dave Barry says that as he grows older, he looks forward to “continued immaturity.” That sentiment is probably based on the fact that his humor is often juvenile and silly (I like it, though!). I’m guessing it’s also because he aspires to remain youthful and innocent and surprisable as he ages. I mention this, fellow Cancerian, because the coming weeks will be an excellent time to celebrate and honor the parts of you that are still blooming but not yet in full blossom. Be grateful you have not become a jaded know-it-all. Would you consider revisiting joys you loved as a child and teenager? Halloween costume suggestion: your younger self.
(July 23-Aug. 22): Horseshoes have symbolized good luck in many cultures. A common usage is to hang them over front doors. But there’s disagreement about the best way to generate the good fortune. Some people say the open end of the horseshoe should point upward, since that collects the luck. Others insist it’s best for the horseshoe to point down, as that showers luck on those who enter and leave the house. If you experiment with this fun myth, I advise you to point the open end up. It’s time for you to gather blessings, help, and fortuity. Halloween costume accessories: good luck charms such as a four-leaf clover, acorn, cat’s eye gemstone, ankh, dragon, laughing Buddha, Ganesh statue, and horseshoe.
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): There would be no life on earth if it weren’t for the sun. Our home star’s energy is the central force at work in the creation and sustenance of all humans, animals, and plants. Yet we must be sure not to get extravagant amounts of our good thing. An overabundance of solar heat and radiance can cause failed crops, dehydration, droughts, skin cancer, and wildfires. Are other factors at work in your sphere that are also nourishing in moderate amounts but unhealthy in excess? And do you know when “just right” becomes “too much”? Now is a favorable time to ruminate on these matters. Halloween costume suggestion: Goldilocks, Lady Justice with her scales, or a body suit adorned with a giant yin and yang symbol.
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The earliest known human settlement is Göbekli Tepe, in what’s now the country of Turkey. When archaeologists first excavated it in 1994, they realized it was built more than 11,000 years ago. This was shocking news, since it dramatically contradicted previous estimates of how long people have lived in villages. I’m predicting a comparable shift in your understanding of your own past, Libra. The full effect may not be apparent for months, but there will be interesting jolts soon. Halloween costume suggestion: archaeologist, time traveler, or yourself in a past life.
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Ófeigur Sigurðsson writes, “You should never do what’s expected of you; there’s always another path through life than the one before you.” I wouldn’t recommend his approach to any other zodiac sign but Scorpio. And I would only advocate it for maybe 40 percent of Scorpios 10 percent of the time. The coming weeks will be one of those 10-percent times. So if you are among the 40 percent who would thrive on this demanding but potentially exhilarating counsel, get ready to be as original and imaginative in living your life as you have ever been. Halloween costume suggestion: unicorn, dragon, or phoenix.
(Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Only two items appear more often in the world’s landfills than disposable diapers. They seem to be among the least ecologically sound products. Or maybe not. Japanese researchers at the University of Kitakyushu have made building materials out of them in combination with gravel, sand, and cement. (Read more: tinyurl. com/BetterWaste). In the spirit of this potentially glorious alchemical transmutation, and in accordance with astrological omens, I encourage you to ruminate on how you might convert wasted stuff into usable valuables in your own sphere. Halloween costume suggestion: A janitor or maid wearing a gold crown and pearls.
(Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Of all the ideas propounded by major religions, the saddest is the Christian assertion that all of us are born sinful—that we come into this world with a corruption that renders us fundamentally flawed: tainted, soiled, guilty, foul. I reject this stupid nonsense. In my spiritual philosophy, we are all born gorgeous, loving geniuses. Tough experiences may diminish our radiance and make it a challenge to be our best, but we never lose the gorgeous, loving genius at our core. In accordance with astrological mandates, your task in the coming weeks is to get into close touch with this pure source. Halloween costume suggestion: your gorgeous, loving genius.
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): According to my meticulous analysis of the astrological omens, you now have a sacred right to expand your ego at least one full size. Even two sizes will probably be fine. Your guardian angel is lobbying for you to strut and swagger, and so are your muses, your ancestors, and God Herself. I hope you will overcome any shyness you feel about expressing your talents, your intelligence, and your unique understanding of the world. Halloween costume suggestion: a charming braggart, charismatic egomaniac, or beautiful narcissist.
(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): “The secret for harvesting the greatest fruitfulness and enjoyment is to live dangerously!” Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said that. “Build your cities on the slopes of Vesuvius!” he added. “Send your ships into uncharted seas!” As for you in the coming weeks, Pisces, I don’t recommend you live dangerously, but I do suggest you live adventurously. Surpass your limits, if you dare! Transcend your expectations and explore the frontiers. Those activities will be a good use of your life energy and are likely to be rewarded. Halloween costume suggestions: daredevil, swashbuckler, gambler, fortune-hunter, or knight-errant.

THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The Independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A HEARING on the petition will be held in this court as follows: 12/28/2023 AT 9:00 a.m. Dept: 5 SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA, 1100 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93101 Anacapa Division. IF YOU OBJECT to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your
objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. IF YOU ARE A CREDITOR or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58 (b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. YOU MAY EXAMINE the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE‑154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code Section 1250.
